Dangerous Music BAX EQ Review

Dec 1, 2011, By Fab Dupont

The BAX EQ is Dangerous Music’s first foray into the world of actual audio “processing.” The brand is well known for pioneering the concept of analog summing with its Dangerous 2-Bus, as well as bringing high-end monitoring systems and mastering consoles to the independent studio market. For this first attempt at a processor, Dangerous Music chose to bring an old-school hi-fi concept to the professional world. ...

Lindell Audio 17X Compressor and Limiter Review

Dec 1, 2011, By Kevin Becka

I’m writing this review just a week after AES 2011 in New York City where the underlying theme was “hardware and lots of it.” One of the stand-out pieces of gear at the show was the single-channel, Lindell Audio 17X FET transformer-coupled compressor/limiter. Sweden-based Lindell is best known for its high-end Reference Modular I and II three-way loudspeaker systems, so making a compressor is a new venture. ...

M-Audio Fast Track C600 Audio Interface Review

Nov 1, 2011, By Brandon T. Hickey

With the release of Pro Tools MP this year, users have been buzzing about the possibility of an upgrade to M-Audio’s hardware. The company’s devices were preferred by many over their LE rivals because of its thorough feature sets, abundance of I/O and reasonable prices. The answer has come in the form of the new M-Audio Fast Track C400 and Fast Track C600 (reviewed here) USB interfaces....

Millennia and Electrodyne 500 Series Modules Review

Nov 1, 2011, By Kevin Becka

Since purchasing a Radial Workhorse 500 earlier this year, I’ve been enjoying the range of modules available for the 500 Series platform. I recently had the pleasure of using three products—the Electrodyne 501 preamp, the Electrodyne 511 inductor-based EQ and a pair of the Millennia Media HV-35 preamps—across a range of applications. What’s great about these and most other 500 Series modules I’ve used in session is how companies have gotten so good at squeezing personality and features into such a small enclosure. ...

KRK Rokit RP10-3 Powered Speakers Review

Nov 1, 2011, By Mike Levine

Most engineers would agree that it’s counterproductive and dangerous to mix at high SPLs all of the time. However, there are times during the mix and tracking/overdubbing processes when you want to really crank it up. Sometimes it’s just to do a reality check on your mix—if it’s something that’s going to be played back at high levels—or possibly your clients are asking to hear it loud. ...

Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro-Codec Review

Oct 1, 2011, By Brandon Hickey

In this era of ever-changing and ever-increasing Web-based media distribution, many of us have become accustomed to a workflow that involves bouncing a mix or a mastering job, encoding it to MP3 or AAC, hearing the result and then going back to apply changes due to deficiencies of the perceived outcome. This can be an irritating and time-consuming dance. The idea of instantiating a plug-in across the master fader during mixing or mastering, which could allow you to monitor the effects of encoding, is an obvious solution, and that is precisely what the Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro-Codec does: ...

PSPaudioware oldTimerME Review

Oct 1, 2011, By Michael Cooper

When PSPaudioware’s oldTimer was introduced a couple of years ago, I thought it was the best-sounding compressor plug-in for the price—a rock-bottom $99. But while its idiot-proof control layout and chameleon-like personality made it a user-friendly and versatile processor for basic mixing duties, oldTimer lacked certain features needed for jockeying advanced mixing techniques and mastering. ...
